September 8, 2016 at 03:20 GMT +00:00 · Published

The colonial-era District Central Jail in Sangareddy, in the Indian state of Telangana, opened its doors to tourists, who can now gain a first-hand experience of prison life by paying a fee of 500 rupees ($7.50 / €6,70) for a day's stay.

Footage from the jail in Sangareddy on Wednesday, shows paying visitors languish their 24-hour sentence away in the guest prison. A 24-hour confinement is offered to visiting 'prisoners' under the initiative dubbed 'Feel the Jail' at the 220-year-old jail, which has been converted into a museum.

Upon entering the prison compound, the inmates are provided with a prison uniform, a steel meal plate, a mug, bedding and other basic necessities. During their 24-hour confinement, the guest 'prisoners' are allowed to plant saplings and clean their barracks.
